World Cup winner Alan Ball has died of a heart attack at the age of 61.

Ball was the youngest member of the England side that won the World Cup in 1966 and went on to win 72 caps.

The industrious midfielder started his career at Blackpool and went on to play for Everton, Arsenal and Southampton before a spell in the United States.

Ball, who collapsed outside his home after tackling a bonfire, also managed seven clubs, including Portsmouth, Southampton and Manchester City.

The man played the best match out of all our world cup players. I remember seeing him talking about this recent world cup , he said our players had the talent but not the guts to win. I have to agree! Sad times for his family.....my wishes go out to them
